What's RSS? What's an RSS feed?RSS (or "really simple syndication") is a technology that lets you broadcast or syndicate your content to the world. An RSS feed is an implementation of this technology with a particular focus. For instance, there may be an RSS feed for comic updates, or for links you find interesting.
In the past, people needed to visit your website to see if you'd updated. If you went a few days between updates, your audience might give up and move on to something else. RSS lets you solve this problem by sending notifications to people when you've posted new content!
RSS goes beyond mere notifications, however - you can go so far as to include your update in the feed itself! It lets websites come to you.
How do people access an RSS feed?RSS feeds are accessed through an RSS reader. You can download stand-alone applications that are designed just to read RSS files, or you can subscribe via your web browser. In most cases, clicking on an RSS file is enough.
The latest versions of Internet Explorer, Firefox, and Opera all include RSS readers.
This sounds great. How do I create an RSS feed?There's the catch. RSS feeds are a type of XML, which is a well-defined document language for computer parsing. This means that it's designed to make it easy for computers to understand it, but not necessarily for humans to create it.
Many web publishing platforms (like WordPress) include RSS syndication by default. If you're already publishing through something like that, great! There's nothing for you to do. But these platforms require you have hosting with database access, which can be costly. Further, many people build their own websites, but building an RSS feed is a hassle that most don't bother with.
That's where we come in.
